It was the summer of 1986 when 21-year-old Susan Conroy got on a plane by herself, going far from her family's home in Maine. Her destination: Calcutta, India. Her reason: to serve the poorest of the poor with Mother Teresa and the Missionaries of Charity.

While serving in Calcutta, Susan developed a personal friendship with Mother Teresa that lasted for the next 11 years, until Mother Teresa was called home to God in 1997. Side-by-side with the great future saint, Susan learned Mother Teresa's insights on suffering, joy, peace, humility, and poverty. She entered into Mother Teresa's heart in her everyday life. She received Mother Teresa's blessing and approval to share the saint's words and prayers with others so "to bring them peace and joy, too."

Susan gathered these gems of spiritual wisdom of the saint into a book published by Marian Press and released on the date of Mother Teresa's canonization this Sept. 4. Praying with Mother Teresa: Prayers, Insights, and Wisdom of Saint Teresa of Calcutta gives a meditative look into the heart and soul of Mother Teresa.

As you read, you enter into the prayer life of one of the most beloved women of all time. It also includes never-before-published photos of Mother Teresa, Susan, and the Missionaries of Charity working at the Home for the Dying in Calcutta. These photos bring to life the words and prayers that you read. This book is an invitation to enter into the life of Mother Teresa — why did she do what she did? How could she do all that she did? Her words and prayers will show you.

Susan Conroy will be at the canonization ceremony of Mother Teresa, and she will be giving interviews with the international media, including CBS Evening News and EWTN.

Remembering Mother Teresa in her love for God in loving the poor inspires. Many times she was present at persons death helping prepare souls to experience Divine Mercy. Makes people think how quick is time and the world passes. Gods love Divine Mercy is steadfast and inviting for pure hearts, in going to best destination to the kingdom without ends, heaven. Her experience of God is unique seeing every person in Gods image. In God anything is possible especially experiencing Gods love Divine Mercy. Asking God daily deeply in the depths of our hearts to experience Gods love Divine Mercy is a possible great way to be happy
